We were lucky because the meeting point was only a block away from our hotel. Slightly concerned when a voice said follow me and about 200 people suddenly appeared and snaked their way to the River. Didn't realise there would be so many, and then wondered if we would be seated and how the buffet would pan out 200 people all getting up to feast- would there be enough food!Need not have worried. Was greeted by the Captain, offered a glass of Champagne and shown to our table by a waitress. Had fantastic views of The Bridges, Buda Castle, Parliament Building all lit up and the Captain stopped close to each so you could go on deck to take photos. There was more than enough food, they were still replenishing the roast potatoes, 15 mins away from docking. The Band was fantastic, we had our glass of wine/beer and mineral water and I had an extra beer which was more than reasonably priced. A great start to our holiday , well worth the money and a must to be able to see Budapest at night.
Really fun thing to do on our first night in Budapest. The lights on the magnificent buildings along the Danube were spectacular. The traditional live music on board was fab. Take the dinner cruise. It's worth it. Just a note: everyone virtually sprints from the meeting and sing-in point to the boat fearful of missing out but don't worry. You will have a reserved table just for you so no need to panic! Just stroll and enjoy every moment of the evening.
Faultless. Beautiful city, excellent food, clean and tidy boat. Thoroughly recommended!
Great value for money, the taxi pick up service to/from hotel was fab!
A beautiful trip at night , leaving point quite difficult to find though ...we stayed out on the deck as you couldn't hear the commentary inside because of the band playing .
A true joy!
So beautiful seeing both sides of the Danube lit up The food was very good and plentiful, and taxis came when ordered to pick us up and return us to our hotel
The cruise was amazing! Seeing all the buildings lighten by night, listening to good music played by the musicians, enjoying the silence of Danube River.
It was a beautiful experience for me and my mother.
This really was five star! Great food, views and music from a friendly string quartet.
First night in Budapest - it could not have been better.
Food - FAB U LOUS
Music - Oh yes and we bought the CD
